FAMELAB 2019 – Applications open
7 January @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
FameLab is a global science communication competition created by Cheltenham Festival and international partner the British Council.
The competition is designed to find the most charismatic up-and-coming scientists from around the world. Competitors are armed only with their wits and a few props – and the result is an unpredictable, enlightening and exciting adventure into incredible research projects.
Join us for an exciting snapshot into the world of science, engineering, maths and technology as some of the country’s most captivating researchers explain fascinating concepts in an unpredictable and enlightening way.
In 2019, FameLab is produced by the Foundation for the WA Museum.
Semi Final – Western Australia – Wednesday 17 April – WA Maritime Museum, Fremantle
Final – Western Australia – Week of 15-17 May – State Theatre Centre, Perth
Entrants must be 21 years old or older, studying or working in science, engineering, technology, medicine or mathematics. FameLab is looking for people who want to talk about their science, not the people who have already working in science communication or promotion as a full-time career.
We welcome applications from:
- Lecturers in science, mathematics or engineering subjects, including specialist science teachers with a science degree
- Researchers who use existing research or meta-studies – they don’t have to be getting their hands dirty
- People who work on applying science, technology or mathematics – for example, patent clerks, statisticians, computer technicians, consultants to industry
- Postgraduate students of science, mathematics or engineering (over 21)
- People who apply science, mathematics or engineering in the armed forces or government bodies
- People who apply science, engineering or mathematics in industry or business
